The Oak Ridge Public Library will offer two opportunities for the public to enroll in the Affordable Care Act on Saturday, Feb. 22, and Saturday, March 8, from 2-5:30 p.m.
These events will be held in the auditorium and manned by volunteers who will provide both ACA information and ACA enrollment assistance for those interested in signing up for health insurance under the new ACA Exchanges. Individual computer stations will be available, and volunteers will be on hand to assist as needed. In addition, a Spanish-language translator will also be available.
The official website for enrollment is www.healthcare.gov; this site also contains detailed information about the ACA, and its costs and benefits.
Those interested in enrolling are encouraged to bring the following: Social Security numbers, income and tax information, and details of employer-sponsored insurance options, if any. Participants should bring this information for themselves and for any family members who may be enrolling. It would also be helpful if attendees already have e-mail accounts, but e-mail assistance will be provided if needed.
These events are free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be provided. Participants are not required to be Oak Ridge residents or library members to receive this assistance.
